Miami International Auto Show displays largest automotive brands (includes video story)

Consumers from South Florida gathered for the 52nd edition of the Miami International Auto Show at the Miami Beach Convention Center where auto manufacturers showed off the future of the industry.

Despite a smaller floor plan than last year, the auto show still featured some of the country’s largest car brands, like Chevrolet, Toyota and Ford.

Exotic cars made a return, but the former classic car space was occupied by vendors. Regardless, consumers were still pleased with the demonstrations and activities available. 

Trevor Lewis was one of the excited attendees at this year’s auto show. He has brought his daughter Gaby with him for the last three events. 

“We’ve been planning this thing every year,” said Lewis. “She can name all the cars now.”

An EV test track was added to the show to demonstrate several electric cars. This included the 2023 GMC Hummer EV, the Rivian R1T, the Volkswagen ID.4, the Ford F150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E. Attendees were able to experience a 0-25 run through a small course. 

The show runs from Sep. 1-10. Tickets can be purchased at
